We are happy to announce that eBay has offered sellers another option for insurance on packages through their new “ShipCover” postal insurance. This insurance is about half the cost of USPS provided insurance on USA shipments (even cheaper for international buyers**), so we will be sending all new shipments that require insurance with this new service. Since they are cheaper than the USPS, you can expect a refund on the shipping cost that you are charged on all listings posted on or before 9/21/10. We love being able to put money back in your pocket! 🙂
ShipCover says they process claims in about 7 days, which is much faster than the USPS. Luckily, we have never had a broken item (knock on wood!), but we like knowing we can offer a more cost effective & time saving service should that ever occur.
ShipCover applies to both USA & international shipments**, so international buyers can expect an even better rate than is currently posted on our items. If there are any questions about the new insurance coverage, please feel free to comment below.
**Please note that ShipCover is not available in the following countries: Belarus, Cote D’ Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Cuba, Iran, Korea, Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea, Burma/Myanmar, Sudan, Syrian Arab Republic, and Zimbabwe. Myriad Trading Co does not ship to Germany or Italy – we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
